Fire and Rescue NSW stations at Moruya, Narooma and Batemans Bay are recruiting on call firefighters putting the call out to those who could make excellent firefighters but may not have necessarily considered it.
From the Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) website it describes on-call firefighters as a diverse group of men and women who balance other work, study and family commitments, but enjoy being part of a team and working with people and other emergency services. Retained (on-call) Firefighters provide a high standard of response to fire and emergency situations. Retained (on-call) Firefighters respond to fires and a variety of emergency incidents in their local community. They use specialised vehicles and equipment to prevent and reduce the risk of fire and potential loss to life and property. They work closely with the local community to increase fire safety awareness and promote fire prevention. “Joining our on-call roster means first-class training and the opportunity to play a crucial role in keeping your community safe, without compromising your current lifestyle. Becoming a retained firefighter is a life changing experience and I encourage you to apply.” - FRNSW Commissioner Paul Baxter For more information you can contact the stations directly or make an application on line via the https://www.fire.nsw.gov.au website or call 1800 Firies (1800 347 437) to be put through to your nearest Zone Office. Applications close on March 8th.
